I had 4 children 3 miscarriages and 1 still birth by the time i reached 27 and suffered so much pain with my monthlys but never knew it to be anything other than severe pm pain and clots. I had a laparoscopy sterilisation at 28yrs then the pain just increased and number 2s is difficult. I didn`t get diagnosed till in my 30s when sent for a scan at the hosp by my then dr but only was offered the marina which i did not take up. I have since found out both my daughters have the same thing and my youngest daughter whose 19 suffers really badly and since been offered laser therepy but guess i will continue working through my pain as i never trouble my dr and didnt know much about it till more recent yrs. I never found pain killers to work but a hot water bottle seems to help soothe and ease the pain when lying down in bed. I have often wondered if it could be inherited as my mother never knew but that is the same as what she suffered to.
